"The 2 years I spent at Mid were perhaps the most transformational years of my life. I entered as a young man seeking direction that I thought was impossible to find. Yet, I opened my mind to opportunities that were provided and developed a great sense of purpose. This turned me into a studious, hardworking, and focused individual. Perhaps I always had these qualities, but it wasn't until my years at Mid with PTK that they truly developed. I am so thankful that I was able to experience that 'AHA' moment.."
